Named in honor of Howard B. Keck, chairman and president emeritus of the W. M. Keck Foundation. The foundation was established in 1954 by his father, William M. Keck, Sr., to support higher education, medical research and science. Under Howard Keck’s leadership, the Foundation provided the grants to build the giant twin telescopes of the W. M. Keck Observatory on the summit of Mauna Kea. (M 27128)

At the suggestion of E. C. Stone, this minor planet is being named on the occasion of the dedication of the second Keck Telescope on 1996 May 8.
